AMD bringing back 'FX' microprocessors

Next Story

Back to School week at CrunchGear

Sometime in the middle of next year, AMD has plans to bring out code-named Deneb FX microprocessors aimed right at the enthusiast market. You might recall that AMD once had competitive high-end chips, the Athlon 64 FX, but eventually, those were out preformed by Intel options. This time around, AMD might have the upper hand with these quad-core, 45nm chips, with speeds up to 2.80GHz and 3.0GHz. No word on price just yet, but if AMD is, in fact, going after the gaming market, the processors are going to cost a lot of cake.
